Many travelers Opt Green, sustainable travel alternatives; reports 


A poll conducted by Opinium Research for High Speed 1 has shown that many persons would travel to Europe by train if there were more available routes.

According to the data provided by Opinium Research, 81 per cent of the participants, which were nationals of the United Kingdom, would prefer to travel by train to Europe for work.


“It is encouraging to see that people travelling for business are now thinking about their carbon footprint and looking for more environmentally friendly options whenever they can,” the CEO of High Speed 1, Dyan Crowther, said.

The figures are even higher when it comes to leisure travel. The study reveals that 86 per cent of persons who plan on taking a trip to Europe would choose to travel by train, provided that they can get direct services to their destination.

The Global Railways Review reveals that travelers from the UK can currently get direct services to several European 

destinations, such as Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels. However, the study has proved strong demand for other international rail routes.

“These results further prove that people travelling abroad from the UK are increasingly looking for more environmentally friendly options. HS1 is the Green Gateway to Europe, and as we look to recover and grow post-Covid-19, we’ll be working tirelessly to deliver more routes on our line into Europe,” Crowther added.

Apart from those mentioned above, the study has shown that 77 per cent of the participants would travel more regularly by train to Europe if there were more competition.


The abolishment of most of the COVID-19 restrictions has affected the increase in the demand for international travel. To reduce dioxide carbon emissions caused by air travel, the EU countries encourage all travelers to choose the train over plane travel.
